Software Update: FrostWire 4.20.6

FrostWire has been updated to version 4.20.6. FrostWire is a Java-written file sharing program for Gnutella and Bittorrent networks, and is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It came about when Limewire, after which this program is modeled, in 2005 considered adding code that would allow copyrighted material to be banned. The installer comes with an Ask toolbar; so pay attention to what is checked when installing. In this release, the Azureus engine has been updated to version, but more has changed since the previous entry in the Meuktracker:
